Overview

This volume explores nearly every facet of contemporary Jesus research — from eyewitness criteria to the reliability of memory, from archaeology to psychobiography, from oral traditions to literary sources.

With contributions from forty internationally respected Jewish and Christian scholars, this distinguished collection of articles comes from the second (2007) Princeton-Prague Symposium on Jesus Research. It summarizes the significant advances in understanding Jesus that scholars have made in recent years through the development of diverse methodologies.

Readers already knowledgeable in the field will discover unique angles from well-known scholars, and all will be amply informed on the current state of Jesus studies.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
The Two Cities
“Offers readers an up to date account of the current state of Jesus scholarship, while also suggestively adumbrating future trajectories in the discipline. . . . Highly recommended for all who have an interest in historical Jesus scholarship.”

Midwest Book Review
“A powerful collection of papers, highly recommended for any scholarly examination of Christian history and Jesus in particular.”

Bible Today
“The focus of the symposium and of this volume is the exploration of new and more effective ways of researching the historical Jesus. The topics range from explicit study of various methodologies to assessment of individual New Testament books and their evidence for the historical Jesus, and then on to analyses of particular aspects of events in the life of Jesus. The international cast of authors includes some of the foremost scholars on these subjects and gives a fine overall quality to the work.”
